Yeasts combine the advantages of fast and easy handling with the potential to perform eukaryotic post-translational modifications and are for this reason interesting hosts for heterologous production of G-protein-coupled receptors. The possibility to connect foreign receptors to a yeast internal MAP kinase pathway was used to establish yeast-based systems for high-throughput screening of compound libraries. In addition, yeasts have the potential for high level production of G-protein-coupled receptors. In this field, non-Saccharomyces yeasts seems to be interesting alternatives to S. cerevisiae, as well as to systems based on higher eukaryotic cells.
